Lately Riley wont stop biting people's hands. We have told him no many times but he wont stop. The other day we were ice skating and he was biting our hands and coats and pulling us around on the ice, he even ripped some gloves up! I don't know what to do... got any advice?

Ouch in response to biting

I agree with the use of a very loud "ouch" when dealing with a biter. I've been taking Mia to puppy class and it's one of the first things our trainer taught us. She said it has the same effect as when another dog yelps ... a kind of canine "Back off!!" ... if it's being nipped or hurt during a rough-housing session. Our trainer has even suggested using it when they are jumping up to grab things like socks or shoes when you're trying to get dressed in the morning or if they mouth your hand inappropriately to get at a treat.
